When the doctor drains a sebaceous cyst does it always have to be removed later.

When the doctor drains a sebaceous cyst does it always have to be removed later.

Probably better: Your cyst was simply drained this time because it became infected and probably abscessed. This leaves a good portion of the capsule behind and the cyst will reform. It may become infected again so usually better to have removed completely once this infection resolves. ...Read more

Dr saying benign ova cyst all these yrs. now it is grow slightly i may need surgery and when open up could be ca. why did they wait ..............

Always uncertainty: In medicine, as in life, there is always uncertainty. A doctor is always trying to make the best guess with the info that he has, always subject to revision as more info is acquired. He told you that in light of new info, it COULD BE cancer, NOT that it was a cancer. Only a biopsy can tell for sure. They wait because you don't want to cut everywhere there is a bump, like whack-a-mole! ...Read more

Why do I sometimes develop whitish, smelly particles on my tonsils? Some can be removed, then they will be gone and return again.

Why do I sometimes develop whitish, smelly particles on my tonsils? Some can be removed, then they will be gone and return again.

Tonsil stones: Aka tonsilliths are calcified materials that form in the crevices of the tonsils, composed mainly of calcium, some phosphorus and ammonia(hence the odor--halitosis). The cause of this nuisance is unknown, but it is often considered harmless. Simple removal with a curette or oral irrigation is often adequate to get rid of them. If u r concerned/bothered by it, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

After one ganglion cyst aspiration, if the cyst is small should I still have it aspirated even though it's still there?

After one ganglion cyst aspiration, if the cyst is small should I still have it aspirated even though it's still there?

How small?: Depends on the size, location, and surgeon. If it's extremely small, it can be hard to get any fluid out, and may not be worth the pain of another aspiration. However, the surgeon who did the first aspiration may feel comfortable since he/she knows where it was the first time. ...Read more

I always use tampons and they never hurt but now they're painful to insert and remove. They dont hurt once inside though. Something wrong with vagina?

External irritation: Pain while inserting a tampon suggests inflammation or small abrasion of the tissue around the opening of the vagina, or it could be a mild infection of the Bartholin's glands, which are at the posterior edge of the opening. Vaginal tissue stretches and is flexible, whereas the residual hymen and vestibule are not & easily injured with sex, aggressive wiping, or straddle injury. ...Read more

8months old 2nd lobe piercings healed partially. But there are bumps around them and sometimes get bigger then pop n bleed with no puss n comes back.

8months old 2nd lobe piercings healed partially. But there are bumps around them and sometimes get bigger then pop n bleed with no puss n comes back.

Doctor can check: If the piercing has a friable spot (a spot that is not healing well, and is easy to start bleeding when irritated), that spot could bleed if one tries to put in or take out an earring. Bumps can also form if there is infection in the skin, or an allergic reaction to the earring's material. A primary care doctor or dermatologist can take a look. It's good to show the doctor an unbroken, new bump. ...Read more

If I have had 4 breast mass removals but none cancerous, (fibroadenomas), could i just get all breast tissue removed so it doesn't happen again?

If I have had 4 breast mass removals but none cancerous, (fibroadenomas), could i just get all breast tissue removed so it doesn't happen again?

Advise: To have a total mastectomy for benign process might be too much. I offer prophylactic mastectomies to women that are a high risk of breast due to family history, personal history, or who have positive genetic testing. Having fibroadenomas does not increase your risk of developing breast cancer. ...Read more
